Home Made Electric Car

http://alltimetv.net David Murray may drive the quietest car in North Texas, powered only by a small electric motor, and not creating any emissions. "The most common question I get is, 'Is this an electric car?' and then they're like, "Is it a hybrid?' Nope, it's a real electric (car)," Murray said. When his car is low on fuel, Murray simply plugs the power cord into the nearest outlet. "Yeah, just plug it in here. Just a regular old extension cord," Murray said. The self-described computer geek from Kennedale bought the 1993 Eagle Talon from a junkyard for just $750. "First thing I did when I got the car home was pull the engine out," Murray said. He then spent about $4,000 more to convert the gas-guzzler to run on electricity alone, doing all the work himself in his garage at home. "I bought the electric motor and I was like well, I gotta figure out a way to couple it together with the original transmission," he said. The car can hit 55 mph, driving right past the high prices at gas stations. "I hear people complain about them at work all the time. I just grin," he said. Murray spends just $7 per month on electricity to charge the batteries -- enough to go about 300 miles. "I don't even look at the gas prices," Murray said. . http://alltimetv.net electric car david murray free energy alternative fuel hybrid

First spinnup
More details at http://www.electric-lemon.com First test of EV motor mounted to transmission. Powered from a 12V battery using a contactor to turn it on and off. The tranny has 80.000 miles on it so it's kind of noisy but the metal cart it's on makes it sound a lot worse than it is.

Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were tse_10. Team Swinburne Electric 2010, AKA tse_10, was the first year a group of Swinburne engineering students endevoured to develop and build an Electric Vehicle for the Formula SAE competition. The team hit trouble when they blew up their motor controller, just over a week before the competition. The team then borrowed another motor controller which also ended up blowing. The team then borrowed ANOTHER motor controller, to which they had some success, until the night before the competition, when it also blew up. In total the team blew up 3x $4,000 controllers, 6 times (after repairs). It is thought that the motor is faulty and is causing the issues.
